Hi All! My wife and I have recently retired and are moving to stage 1 of our long awaited retirement plan - we have purchased a new 2018 Winnebago View 24D that we pick up in the spring. We have done a lot of research on what is best for us and I "think" we've spec'd out our perfect unit, (many thanks to the folks / threads on this site for that!!). But .... one question I can't find good guidance on is the application by the dealer of a hand applied "protective shield". Its' not cheap at almost $1,000 but the literature I've seen almost makes it seem like a "no-brainer" because of the 5 year warranty and the fact I don't need to wax or spend nearly as much time cleaning. Any thoughts by this group to help with our last decision on our View would be much appreciated.

My last unit had it. Seem to work well. It was a little easier to clean the dead bugs off of. My only problem is where I am in southern Texas I see people with older coach and a product similar to what we are talking about out there with hair dryers taking it off because he had yellowed so badly. To my way of thinking I'd use the thousand dollars elsewhere. My current unit unit doesn't have it and I have no intention of putting it on.
Congratulations on your new view I hope you enjoy it many happy trips.
